The bottling that made Bobby’s name, their Schiedam Dry Gin, was based on an old-school Dutch Jenever. Now they have flipped the formula, producing a delicious Jenever, using some of the same botanicals that make their gin.
Jenever is generally seen as the father of gin, and is produced with a base of malt wine. It is often distilled in pot stills, giving it a malty, weighty spirit similar to whisky. Herbs were originally added for medicinal benefits, and to mask the flavour of the harsh alcohol (though distillation techniques have improved considerably in the 500 plus years since Jenever was first created).
This Jenever is flavoured with cardamom, juniper, cubeb peppercorns, lemongrass, and ginger.
The result is a characterful spirit, with a rich juniper profile, and plenty of citrusy zing, ginger freshness and earthy spice.
Works like a gin and is perfect paired with tonic, but is also complex enough to drink neat or over ice.
